Reflect God’s Light

Jim and I celebrated one anniversary on the Big Island of Hawaii, which included a trip to the famous active Kilauea Volcano. We were told to arrive at the lava flow just before dark so that we could see the most active area of red-hot lava at night. We were also warned to bring flashlights so we wouldn’t fall while hiking in the dark.

As the sun began to slip into the Pacific, we started our trek over mounds of hardened lava. Right away we met a couple struggling to make the same walk without flashlights. Since we had two, Jim gave them one of ours. I can’t imagine what might have happened to them if we hadn’t come along with that extra flashlight.

You and I have the same need for light in the spiritual realm. Before we belonged to Christ, we were like that couple trying to walk on the path, stumbling and falling. But now we have the light of Christ, and God expects us to “let it shine.” He wants us to pass on the light and be a positive influence to those still in darkness.

Christ is no longer physically present on earth, but you reflect His light to those in darkness as you bear the fruit of goodness, righteousness, truthfulness. You are unbelievably blessed as a child of God! God says, “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16).

Imagine! Just as Jim and I were able to physically assist a couple trying to walk in the dark by giving them a flashlight, you are able to do the same spiritually as you reflect the light that is yours as a child of the Supreme Light.

We’ve all struggled at one time or another with our ability to fully trust God. I never truly realized the extent to which I wrestled with Him over both the simplest of things, and the big things, until I had children. Yet, I would always hear Him whisper to my spirit, “I will protect them. Trust me.”
